- AT THE TOP OF YOUR GROCERY LIST WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD FOR THOUGHT.
Lunchbreak Press lives in a quiet little corner of a cozy log cabin deep in the Northwoods of the upper Midwest. Far from the cold and sterile confines of Big-City Publishing where the most important reading is the reading of the bottom line, Lunchbreak is basically a family-run shop, with a garden growing just outside the back door and a misty lake a few steps into the morning sun. The company vehicles are a single-speed canoe, several multi-speed bikes, and a very patient vintage Volkswagen Microbus -- the Bus usually seen with a big fuzzy dog riding shotgun. Advertising and promotion? Most of this is left to you, since promotion is at its best when coming from the reader. So if a book by Lunchbreak has left you in a good mood, a reflective mood, and in a mood to put what touched your mind into the hands of someone else, feel free to place an order, because the ocean is not just water, but a gathering place for raindrops when they feel a need to make waves.

THE 99TH OF AUGUST
On the 99th of August
flakes of snow
were drifting down.
Said those born at the harvest,
"What the devil had gone wrong?"
When wandering away from the future, can fate be blamed if all goes wrong? If most moves are made to bridge barriers that block a dead end, can these moves be called progress? The 99th of August tells of that particular time in young life when temptation has much greater appeal than opportunity, and what better way to tell such a story than from the mind and through the eyes of a 16-year-old?
A BUS WILL BRING YOU BACK
. . . when you'd rather be the driver than the driven.
They adapted to any situation, from hauling a ton of cargo to carrying nine passengers to simply being driven along for the pure freaken fun of it. It was the original minivan, the original camper, and is still widely known as the iconic "Hippie Van."
By now you know we're talking about the storied Volkswagen Microbus.
A BUS WILL TAKE YOU THERE
. . . partly about a bus but mostly about drivers and how they are driven.
From the Yukon to Montana, the Bus takes you down the Alaska Highway on a trip fraught with problems -- a trip to meet the richest man in the world, a man who laughs at problems because “problems are only solutions in the formative stage.“

A Journey to the Origin of Belief
Earthly descriptions are notorious for falling short of defining what we regard as the spiritual, so rather than struggle to define, maybe we should simply ask, "Is there such a thing as being so close to the edge that you get a glimpse of an awaiting state?"
